After the pleasant coolness of the weekend, the temperature has risen again today as the sun shines down from a clear sky. Agreed, the temperature is only in the mid-twenties rather than the upper-thirties of last week but to us Brits that’s quite high enough, thank you, and don’t get any ideas about going any higher!
Tower of London
I took this snap of the Tower of London as I passed by. This sometime royal palace, fortress, prison and place of execution is an important remnant of Britain’s troubled and often savage history as well as a popular stop on the tourist trail.
East Dock, St Katharine Docks
I walked through the eastern end of St Katharine Docks, which consist of three basins linked by a lock to the tidal reaches of the Thames.
Originally commercial docks dating from the 1820s, they are today a privately run marina full of luxury craft, many of which remain here on a more or less permanent basis.
I did not tarry here, though, because I was on my way to meet Tigger from work for our bus ride home together. I am finishing writing this post as I wait for her in the atrium of the office block where she works.
